pastels colours / pastelne boje

My fashion illustration/ moja modna ilustracija
Pastel hair, pastel make up, pastel clothes, pastel everything...the pastels colours are in again. What do you think about them? What is your pastel colour of choice? Which one was your favourite when you were a child? I think mine was pink, a predictable choice ...that is after all what most girls say when you asked them about their favourite colours. I find that there is something relaxing in the pastel colours. In addition, there is a lot of potential for subtle and elegant looks to be found in pastel colours. Spring is making me feel both quite hyperactive and really tired this year, so the relaxation offered by the gentle shades is more than welcome.  

Pastelna kosa, pastelna šminka, pastelna odjeća...ponovo su popularne pastelne boje. Što mislite o njima? Koja je vaša najdraža pastelna boja? Koja vam je bila najdraža kad ste bili dijete? Mislim da je moja bila roza, predvidljiv izbor jer to je ipak što većina djevojčica kaže kad ih se pita za omiljenu boju. Mislim da ima nešto relaksirajuće u pastelnim nijansama, a imaju i puno potencijala kod postizanja suptilnog i elegantnog izgleda. Proljeće me ove godine čini i prilično hiperaktivnom i jako umornom u isto vrijeme, tako da je dobrodošla relaksacija koju nude nježnije boje.


  1. So pretty!! I love pastels. My favourite colour has always been blue, even in pastel shades. I hated pink, haha. Spring has made me tired yet energized. The weather has been up and down, so I hope it will steady itself out here soon!! Have a sweet day doll xx

  2. Mint, baby roza i bez nijanse su mi najdraze :)

  3. I mene ovo proljeće nekako umara, joj joj :) Meni lijepo izgledaju sve pastelne nijanse iako ih baš nećeš vidjeti na meni jer sam više pobornik žarkih boja, ali ih jako volim vidjeti na drugima.

  4. Great post dear...lovely pics..:-)
    Have a successful day!

  5. Volim pastelne, najomiljene su mi nježno roza i mint.

  6. I think mine is pink too :p Love the shades of this illustration!

  7. Divan crtež :) Ja obožavam pastelne boje, posebno kad su u pitanju žuta i mint zelena...

  8. very pretty (muy bonito)...

  9. Anche a me piacciono molto i colori pastello, però non ricordo quale fosse il mio preferito da piccola!

  10. I really wanted to try pink hair this summer, my boyfriend looked at me like I'm crazy...I have plenty of time to decide :-)

  11. Sei bravissima, complimenti!
    Adoro tutti i colori pastello, difficile sceglierne uno. Ultimamente sono in fissa con il giallo pastello
    un bacio

    1. grazie...anch'io adoro il giallo pastelo:)

  12. I love pastel pink color

  13. Yay za pastelne boje! Moram da sebi jos kupim koju odjecu u plavoj, rozoj boji.. :)

  14. When I was a teenager I was really mad about pink, I wanted everything what I have to be pink. It was real madness and I was looking like a pink lollipop. Those times are so far away now, and I would prefer black and white to pink without a shadow of doubt. At the same time, I love your painting, it looks so original, I also agree that elegance and royal chic can be definitely found in pastel colours and soft shades too!

  15. I think you know that I'm in general a huge lover of colours. And althoug I think I prefer bright colours a bit more than pastel colours I love this colour palette also. My favourite colours from the pastels are for sure pink and pale blue, and I think I love pink also when I was a child. And a beautiful drawing again, I like it really much!

My fashion illustration of the day + book review / Moja modna ilustracija dana + ogled knjige ( Le Diable au corps) 6.12.2016

This morning I read an amazing novel. Le Diable au corps (translated as The Devil In the Flesh) is a novel by Raymond Radiquet. Believe it or not, this was by first book by this French writer. I don't think I even heard of him before, which is odd, but well, it happens. In his time, Raymond was quite a celebrity and he is still considered as one of the important French writers of that period. Did I like this novel? Quite frankly, I loved it. I just couldn't put this novel down. I must have read it an hour or so. I got up a bit more earlier this morning so I actually had time to read it with my morning coffee (it is not a very long novel but still it is amazing how easy it was to find one's self glued to those pages). Perhaps I should make it a habit, getting up more early so I can read more. 
Jutros sam pročitala divan roman. Đavo u tijelu  (naslov izvornika Le Diable au corps) je roman Raymonda Radiqueta. Vjerovali ili ne, ovo je moj prvi roman ovoga pisca. Mislim da nika…

Fashion illustrations of the day (markers)

Hello darlings! How are you? Can you believe that February ends today? This month has just flown by. I know it's the shortest month in the year but still. Today I'm going to share 3 fashion illustrations and sketches with you. The medium for all of them is marker on paper. I don't work with markers that often, but sometimes it is good to try something different. The fashion sketches I'm sharing are all about 3 colours: purple, green and red. Spring is in the air, so this is my reflection on all those trends for the new season. The first illustration shows a girl wearing a purple and blue jumpsuit. The second illustration features a girl wearing a transparent green dress with a top and a skirt under that dress. The third illustration shows two girls in red gowns.


February Recap (art & DIY projects & outfits)

I've put a lot of effort into blogging this February, I hope it shows. As far as the content goes, February was similar to January, mostly a mix of my illustrations and outfit posts (here). This month I was full of positing ideas and I managed to make many of them happen. I feel pretty good about that. The only thing I feel bad about is making my blog monolingual and not using my other languages, but translating texts from English to other languages takes such a long time. It is so much easier to just write in English.  Hopefully, I'll manage to change that and make my blog multilingual again. I need to organize my time better. Fingers crossed. For March I already have a few posts prepared. You can expect more art (mostly fashion illustrations) & outfit posts. 

I shared two DIY projects in February, one about making a Barbie dress, the other was about how to paint a plant container. I don't have any DIY projects prepared for March, but I'm sure that I…
